This 4-week class focuses on the use of the Adams-Ross Model for recovery from trauma. Using the concepts of “Pacing, Structure and Containment” – created by Adams and “Intention – Attention – Action” created by Ross, we practice and demonstrate how to create safety and stability for the trauma survivor. Participants will learn about expanding the window of tolerance and access implicit memory through story telling. This course is not appropriate for those actively managing trauma symptoms.

Journaling the Gift of Gratitude
Instructor: Nancy Scherlong
4-Week Class (Oct. 18 – Nov. 14)
Price – $190.00

Would you like more peace as we head into this season and close out the year? Much research indicates that “leaning in” to our lives with gratitude can increase happiness and overall life satisfaction. Join us during this often over-busy holiday season to experience first-hand gratitude-boosting practices and resources! It is all too easy to lapse into “dumping,” complaining or noticing what is not going well when we are stressed. Most of our memories of joyfulness involve a sensory awareness and feeling fully present. Together we will share selected readings, poems and journal prompts as well as aspects of narrative medicine in creating rituals that increase presence, joy and appreciation.This time of year also brings opportunities to connect with loved ones and friends. We will create both individual and community rituals for expansion into vitality that feed our mind, body, soul and relationships.

Table Tales
Instructor: Hanna Merin
4-Week Class (Oct. 18 – Nov. 14)
Price – $190.00

The Holiday table is the place were tradition, heritage, relationship, pain and love gather together. In this four week fall journey, we will visit over the hot stove of our journals, recalling memories, stories, and family tales that have decorated our holidays. We will write our way from the ‘there and then’ of past holidays and look forward to taking that knowledge and those stories into the ‘here and now’ of the holiday feasts to come.
